Wigan International Jazz Festival

Liverpooljazz was once again delighted to be one of the sponsors of the 33rd Wigan International Jazz Festival which was held between 12th and 15th July.

Although the festival has changed management this year and run by a new company The Music Continuum, it was still in the very capable hands of directors Ian Darrington and Peter Fletcher who attracted record audiences with stars including Curtis Stigers, The Ronnie Scott’s Big Band, James Morrison, The Champian Fulton Trio with Scott Hamilton and Jeremy Sassoon’s amazing tribute to the music or Ray Charles (photo below) plus some of the regular favourites like the Wigan Youth Jazz Orchestra and Georgina Jackson.

More strings (and brass) to your elbow gentlemen, and here’s looking forward to another great festival in 2019.
